Hi
I don't know what happened and how it happened - but nothing was done with
malice intent, of course!
Cheers

Hi there,
it wasn't me, who stated "Bingo! No real security here". I guess Johan
didn't delete my Name in one of my Answers. Security in heterogene
networks goes way much too wide for this support list.
In my opinion, if someone wants to distribute a programme, which handles
confident data, he/she has to catch an expert for that part of the
solution.

Sincerly your
amateur security expert and amateur firebird fan
